Connecticut lawmakers pass bill to ban bump stocks
A bill banning the use of bump stock devices has passed the Connecticut General Assembly with wide Republican support.
The state Senate passed the bill Tuesday night with a 26-10 vote.
The bill passed the House last week and is a priority for Gov. Dannel Malloy, who said in a statement that he plans to sign the measure "in the coming days."
A bump stock device allows semi-automatic weapons to fire like automatics.
Several other states have moved to ban the devices after they were used in the Las Vegas concert massacre.
